Thanks for the info. I didn't know that Marlin made only -36 and not -35. There was one piece for sale marked like this, maybe seller erred or maybe it's some later smithy stamped version, because there's been 25-35 around and it even has European cousin 6.5x52R, but I have never heard about -36... I also realized that Marlin safety in this case means true side ejection, not any modern safety thingys... NebrHogger, Your sigline is from Eli Wallach...? It's great!
